Church History

Phoenix, the capital of Arizona which is the South western state of United Sates. For the last decade, this Metropolitan city has witnessed a huge growth in their socio, cultural development. There is a huge and dramatic increase in the Indian population for the last one decade which brings the true taste of the land of India.

The Pastor and International Assembly of God are committed to be for your service. Volunteers are committed to assist the new immigrants in everything and everywhere. We have even bought a 15 passenger van to pick up the families from the airport, find them the right apartment, help processing the social security card and any other services they require to be settled down. You may please contact one of our staff or send an email to the Pastor.<

Church Building

Age often allows for ease in success and such is the case for International Assembly of God, Arizona’s first church for the East Indian community in Arizona. IAG has served the Valley since 1997 with the vision of Pastor Roy Cheriyan, who was called into ministry in Arizona while studying in Bible college in Chicago, Illinois. The church had its modest beginnings in a Sunday school classroom at living water of the Valley church for the initial five years. As expansion led to a need for a larger building, IAG rented a storefront in Tempe and begin to grow exponentially. However, after three years, the church felt it could no longer continue to restrain the budding church to the small confines of the storefront. God opened up the possibility of sharing a church building with Sonrise Assembly of God in Gilbert. With this move, the church spent three marvelous years as the church grew in population, structure and worship. In the three years at Sonrise, the church brought to the Lord and baptized a number of individuals, redefined its Sunday school program, established cell groups that meet throughout the week, continued its focus on strong Spirit-led worship, and developed the youth and children to become acclaimed as a successful group in their church-related activities within the state, regionally and nationally. In 2008 we located an old building in Mesa to call as our Church home. Again, the building could not contain the growth and the needs of Sunday School for 60+ children.

Now, we have acquired a beautiful facility in the down town of Chandler City with a Sanctuary for 270, a fellowship hall for 200+, lot of Sunday School rooms, nursery, kitchen etc. We are excited for what the Lord is doing in our church.

We have systematic Sunday school for all ages, youth ministry, ladies ministry and cell groups in all the areas.

“God bless you as you bless International Assembly of God.”
